Why do we eat turkey for Thanksgiving?
I presume it was because the Native Americans introduced the
bird to the Pilgrims (but not necessarily on Thanksgiving Day). It
was a large bird that was not migratory and therefore was available
throughout the year. It was large enough to feed more than one
family. Have you ever eaten a wild turkey? Moma-mia! If
cooked right, it tastes much better than a Butter-Ball and a lot
less fat in your diet. Wild turkeys feed on acorns and other
natural products(including insects and small reptiles, etc.) that
give them a totally different taste.
